ANYONE RE-THINKING THEIR BLOG?
Check this out. According to the guys at: http://www.businessblogconsulting.com/
The reason to switch over to WordPress was obvious. Here is what they said.
"Because WordPress is such a popular blogging platform, it’s easy to find developers to work on it. It also certainly doesn’t hurt that WordPress is written in PHP — the most popular programming language on the planet!
WordPress is easily extensible through the use of plugins. Many hundreds of plugins exist already. It’s also pretty easy (if you’re a developer) to write your own plugins. That’s a lot more elegant that directly hacking the WordPress code base.
Maintaining inlinks to former URLs can often be accomplished just by making the “post slugs” (filenames) consistent with the old site then adding a rewrite rule to the .htaccess file that maps to the new URL structure. If that’s not possible, you can always create a comprehensive list of 301 (permanent-style) redirects to add to your .htaccess file.
So I made my case for running WordPress on non-blogs, based primarily on the positive impact on SEO that you’ll get out of doing so. This rounds out the reasons for switching to include compelling reasons beyond just search rankings."
Is that something or what?
So of you want to get more out of your site and be seen this is the way to go. You will want to make sure that you are using whatever technology the search engine spiders are using. This makes the most sense so you are talking back and forth with them. Now... I do like Blogger and Beta Blogger because it is owned by Google. So its good to have a fair mix of blogs working with you so you can be seen on the web.
The correct combinations of blog software, RSS Aggregators, Podcasting shows and the right distribution networks are going to ensure your success. There is no "right" formula for doing this. But you definately can get some real search engine attention with just the right amount of "pinging". This new material on using WordPress gives you an edge.
Its worth checking out.
